Strawberry Aqua Fresca and a Winner!!



Time to announce the winner of my Giveaway!!

I can't figure out how to get Random.org's display here. But it generated number the 44! Lindsey from Lindselicious is the winner of 2 bags of nuts/dried fruits provided by Oh! Nuts!!  Congratulations!

Back to the strawberries!  I had never made strawberries into a drink before, so I figured why not give it a try! I have been hesitant to write this post, because the picture is not a good one.  I don't know what happened, but no matter what I do, it is not as pretty as I want it to be.  But it was cool and refreshing and just yummy, so I feel like you will move beyond the picture and try this!  I am sure there are plenty of different ways to spice this up, or turn it into a cocktail, but I didn't get that far.  If you do, let me know how it turns out!

Strawberry Agua Fresca
Printable Recipe

1 lb strawberries,  hulled and sliced
2 1/2 cups cold water
4 Tbls sugar
1 lime, juiced

Puree the strawberries in a food processor. Strain them through a mesh strainer.   Pour the seedless puree into a pitcher and add the water, lime juice and sugar. Stir well.  Serve over ice, and garnish with lime slice.

Great job on this delicious refresher! Your picture does look good. I suffer from the "picture in my head, prior to taking the picture" and no it never turns out the same. It is a habit I need to break.
